Here's one that should be available
7 September 2008 | by WxFzSee all my reviews

This two-episoder is packed with superb one-liners, lovable pomposity, and, while there is quite a bit of national leg-pulling, nothing which could be called malicious. - WHY is this not available ??? I recorded the two-parter on video when it was broadcast and lent it to many friends who agreed that it was one of the best shows they had seen. Unfortunately the video became lost - I've waited for a BBC repeat in vain : I'm sure if the BBC were to make it available, it would fly up the bestseller lists ! and 'in a funny sort of way' it would !! Martin Clunes as Group Captain Barker is no less than superb, and is backed up by some very fine talent all round.
